The M18 Hellcat, officially known as the M18 Gun Motor Carriage, was an American tank destroyer utilized during World War II. Introduced in 1943, the Hellcat was designed for speed and agility, boasting a remarkable top speed of 55 miles per hour (89 km/h). Armed with a potent 76 mm gun, the Hellcat was adept at hit-and-run tactics, allowing it to outmaneuver and engage enemy tanks effectively. Its lightweight and high speed made it one of the fastest armored vehicles of its time. The M18 Hellcat played a crucial role in the later stages of World War II and is remembered as one of the most successful tank destroyers in U.S. military history.
